Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.
I'm taking a break from Christmas cards today to show you another face drawing and painting. I'm a little obsessed with sketching faces lately but I won't bore you by showing everything.
I created this page using techniques learned in Tamara Laporte's of Willowing Arts, Fabulous faces self study course. I wasn't following anything, just having fun practicing drawing and painting with mixed media. I'm a gardener and love flowers and so I like to doodle draw them as well.
This is a different colour combination for me. The hair started out
with copper acrylic paint and I didn't like how it looked. The beauty of acrylics
is that you can easily go over top when dry :) So then I decided on
Magenta hair with a few copper highlights. I was a bit 'stumped' as to
what colours should surround her, but eventually made the decision on
blues and pinks. The background has a few layers including stenciling.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
